Cryogenic Carbon Capture™ (CCC) is a post-combustion technology that reduces carbon emissions from fossil energy power stations, cement, pulp and paper, iron and steel facilities as well as certain chemical production plants.
CCC goes beyond permanent below ground geologic storage of captured carbon by delivering liquid carbon dioxide as a usable or saleable commodity. Furthermore, CCC reduces carbon emissions by 95 to 99% with half the cost and energy of competing processes and also eliminates harmful SOx, NOx and mercury pollutants from flue gases.
Conceptually Simple and Proven Process
Integrates seamlessly with Chart's cryogenic liquefaction, storage and distribution technology and products
Captures up to 99% of emissions from natural gas, coal, cement and biomass
Lowest cost and easiest retrofit carbon capture technology
Integrated grid scale energy storage
Produces high purity liquid CO2
"Of all these [carbon capture] processes, I regard the CCC process to have the greatest potential." Howard Herzog, MIT Energy Initiative
CCC is a perfect fit with Chart's IPSMR® process technology, brazed aluminum heat exchangers, liquid CO2 storage tanks and transportables providing liquid CO2 for end-use applications.
CCC's 'Energy Storing' implementation also enables highly efficient grid scale energy storage with better use of renewable energy sources that virtually eliminates the parasitic load during peak demand.
CCC is a true bolt-on technology that can be fitted onto existing plants or integrated into new plants for additional energy saving benefits.
Proven in the field
SES and partners teamed up to deliver the cement industry's first integrated carbon capture pilot plant and have also conducted successful field demonstrations using natural gas, coal and bio-mass as exhaust gas sources.

Eliminating Methane Emissions
The Kathairos™ Solution uses liquid nitrogen, instead of methane, to operate pneumatic devices at off-grid oil and gas facilities thereby eliminating methane emissions during routine site venting. Chart's MicroBulk system provides a continuous unattended nitrogen supply. Solution can be purchased outright or leased.
How Cryogenic Carbon Capture Works
Small-Scale Carbon Capture
Earthly Labs technology captures and repurposes carbon dioxide waste from smaller businesses, homes, and transportation that make up more than half of all CO2 emissions. With us, you reduce emissions and have a valuable product to show for it.
